Hahnemühle Photo Matt Fibre 200gsm - This is a matt coated smooth inkjet paper with a warmtone paper shade, good opacity, a fine smooth surface, good rigidity and a consistent flatness. Suitable for photography, portrait, posters and signage applications.

Epson Watercolour Radiant White 190gsm - This paper is the choice for many users that would like to reproduce art images, graphic art, and photographic reproductions on a matt structured surface, so they can be distinguished from pictures that were printed on resin-coated photo paper.

Hahnemühle Photo Rag 308gsm 100% cotton - Photo Rag is the most popular paper chosen by photographers to create high quality fine art prints. The fine, smooth surface and feel of Photo Rag make this paper very versatile and it's ideal for printing both black and white and colour photographs and art reproductions with impressive pictorial depth.

Hahnemühle Photo Rag Ultra Smooth 305gsm 100% cotton - With its extra smooth surface Photo Rag Ultra Smooth is particularly interesting for users who want proven Photo Rag quality but with less texture and a brighter white point.

Hahnemühle Textured Fine Art 310gsm - With its matt texture this paper is a genuine mould-made paper in both look and feel. It is ideal for reproductions of traditional artworks and also for striking and expressive photo reproductions

Epson Doubleweight Matt 180gsm - Doubleweight Matt is suitable for daily printing tasks. Users not only appreciate being able to produce photographic reproductions and graphics on a matt surface, but also final proof sheets and business presentations.

Epson Enhanced Matt 190gsm - Enhanced Matt paper is a bright white, non-glare, matt surface substrate with a 40% increase in colour gamut compared to that of the existing Doubleweight Matt and Watercolor Paper Radiant White media. This medium is ideally suited to photography and fine art applications where excellent colour vividness is required.
